During registration if you enter a strong password it will be accepted but you wont be able to login.The site needs a weak password with simple words and numbers.If somebody by accident registered with a strong password can use password recovery for a working weak password.

The site did not get hacked.  The message your received simply means that data being sent from your PC to the site is not encrypted.  So if someone were to intercept it, they could read the information.  This is true of many websites that do not require the level of security needed to protect user data.  Your log in credentials for motherboard support is one of these cases.
